Recruiting the appropriate photographer, graphic designer, illustrator, or printer to design a brochure or package, or any other marketing tool can sometimes be a straightforward process. Most art and office supply stores carry a substantial selection of graphic design portfolios. These books provide the names, addresses, and phone numbers of a varied assortment of working professionals. The catalogues are broken down by specialty and offer samples of each artist's work.
